The Hollywood actor is in town to film the remake of Nosferatu, currently shooting in Prague’s Barrandov Studios.
The remake of the 1922 German expressionist horror classic Nosferatu is directed by Robert Eggers and filming is well underway, while Willem Dafoe popped into a restaurant in the Vinohrady neighborhood this week for some Ukrainian borscht. “Today a real film star visited us to try authentic Ukrainian borsch. Willem Dafoe told us that he likes borsch and as a proof eagerly ate a bowl of our tasty mushroom borsch,” the Boršč restaurant said on Instagram.
The relatively small restaurant, with just a few tables and a bar counter, opened at the end of 2021 and does a large part of its business by takeaway or delivery. The restaurant is run by a married couple from Kropyvnyicki, Ukraine, Natalia Bas and Alex Martynov. Their aim is to produce quality Ukrainian food.
